Anyone who ordered this color should be the happiest in the world right now. Its the best looking color for this car, definitely. I almost regret not getting it. I had no idea it would look this good.

I WAS having a hard time deciding between Crimson red and AW.

Leaning towards CR after this thread

^^^You and me both. I do think AW is more 'suitable' for a BMW. The other thing is AW will give you more options when it comes to wheel colors. (silver, black, grey...they all work on a white car IMO)

Crimson red with a black interior is very hot on this car. At this point it is hands down my first choice. A neighbor of mine used to have an E46 coupe in a similar red with balck leatherette and it always stood out in a really good way. The 1er looks even better. I was all about black and SGM, but the red is really, really nice...

hey what dose anyone think about crimson red on coral red, o0o0 i want both but cant decide, bmws with black interiors are dull in my opinon, and a dark color on the exterior makes the car blend in too much, i'd do Sg with the red interior but i really really want the crimson red, it reminds me of my late mini cooper and i loved that car. and honestly i really liked my red mini and really want a red car but the interior is soooo nice. ehough blabering my point is... do you think red on red is a little much?

I actually wanted the Kiwi interior but the BMWNA police would not budge.

Red on Red may a bit much....but do what makes you happy.

The pics above sold me on the Crimson Red earlier in the week. I changed my color spec to CR after that. I did have SGM. I really like the color in general, but it contrasts so well with the black trim and window tint. Plus, with the lighter colors you can get silver or black wheels, and black wheels are hot right now. Would love black O.Z Ultraleggeras on a CR, AW, or titanium silver 135i. Also, lately I've had 2 silver cars (A4 and 325i), 1 silver gray (530i), 1 dark gray (TT), and 1 black (325i). I'm tired of the dull colors. I did have a MINI S in Hyper Blue though...

I originally had ordered Sedona Red, until I actually saw it at a car show. I changed the order to Jet Black, a great color for Bimmers. No way I was going with plain-vanilla AW. (No offense to the AW fans) And, at the time, I couldn't find any good pics is CR. Now, after seeing these great CR pics, there is little doubt that the Crimson Red 135i will be one of the most gorgeous cars on the road! Man, it's HOT! Too late for me to change, as mine is already on a boat headed my way, and I'll be loving that beautiful JB, but you are so lucky if you get it in CR!!! No way will you ever regret it! Good luck.

You can park a Crimson Red 135i next to any other 135i color and your eyes will be uncontrollably drawn to the red one. The color just pops! I can't wait to get mine (30 April delivery)!!!!
